...And I'm back!

I know it's been a while since I've written any content.  I sincerely apologize for that, and really need to up my game here! I really just need to shake it out of me! I was browsing blogs and came across the lovely Shannon from Champagne at Shannon's. This post really got me inspired to write again.

I will catch you up on what I've been up to the last few months, and what's to come in the near future!

Over the past few months I've really focused on my website and online shop <<If you haven't already heard it's called Showered With Design>> 
I branched out, bought a domain, and now run both my Etsy shop AND my own online shop. My online shop offers much more than my Etsy shop does. From boutique baby items to jewelry to glittered drink-ware. I can truly say that I LOVE what I do, and am so excited to bring more in the future!  

My husband and I recently started a whole "Eating healthier," "Start workout plans" yada yada.  I wish I had more to tell, but we literally just started yesterday. With summer and river season just around the corner, and our bad habit late night eats, we both knew we needed to change our ways. We wrote a list of things to buy from the store, started including healthier ideas, without going too overboard.  We aren't "cutting" things out necessarily, but more-so portion control.  Our menu for the first few days so far:
  • 1 slice whole wheat toast with peanut butter and 1 banana for breakfast
  • 1 hard boiled egg, 1 avocado, and 1 cup of cottage cheese with tomato slices for lunch
  • Monday: Chicken Breast, Steamed Broccoli, 1 Cup of carrots, and 1/2 Cup cottage cheese
  • Tuesday: 3 oz. Steak, Grilled Corn, Sliced tomatoes 
  • Wednesday: Chicken breast salad, with corn, tomatoes, cucumbers, with Italian dressing.
I know implementing healthier options is going to give us the jump start to feeling better. I already notice that I feel much more satisfied not stuffing my face full, but really portioning out our food.  I already eat pretty slow and that helps me get full faster.
We will be working out too! (Which I haven't done in quite some time-- Embarrassing, I know.) Stay tuned!

What are your healthy habits, go-to inspirational sites, social media outlets to help keep you on track?

Weekend Recap

Boy did we have quite the changes this weekend.  We started off supposed to go to Vegas, and then my husbands family was supposed to come to town.  All that changed, but we were still able to head to the Baseball Alumni after-party on Saturday. My husband went to the game, but I knew I needed to get some orders taken care of.  It was definitely a crazy night.

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday!  I got a LOT of orders done this weekend and this was one of my favorites:
A Birth Stat canvas.  She wanted a "my little sunshine" theme to match her room.  It came out super adorable!
My second favorite is this mug "I woke up #le tired."  I am shipping out 23 orders today.  Phew! But I feel so accomplished!

I took hubby for dinner Sunday night to our favorite Japanese Steak House.  They have HUGE portions so I of course have some for breakfast/lunch today which I am so excited about!

Other than that, my weekend was basically filled of me cleaning, and working on shop orders!  How did you spend yours?

Weekend Recap

Good morning! Hope you all had a great New Years! It still doesn't even feel real to me yet that is it 2016.  I am co-hosting for this weekend recap with Bella from Bella And The City. This weekend I went to the river with some friends and the hubby and we had the best time!  We road buggies, played drinking games, had a bonfire, and danced! Our buggy ended up getting stuck in the middle of the desert, but luckily we had some friends nearby who were able to tow us out!  We went straight to the bar to grab beers and pizza after that little incident.  But it always makes for some great memories.

Link up with Bella and I and tell us about your weekend!
